I specifically recall telling Andy not to plug his Leaf in to charge until the gas fueled power stations had come back on-line

Anyway, it's comforting to know that we still have capacity when the gas supply suffers (for now).
Happy?

Bus low emission tech is here now

There are tax benefits for going ultra low emissions

It just general apathy, couldn't careless attitude. You and I will be forced to go ultra low/zero emission or be forced off the road.
precisely - in ten years time driving a high emission vehicle (C02 or NOX) will be like harking back to a 100 watt light bulb


the world moves forward

I repair mine...they usually blow the PCB or protective fuse because a couple of 1N4007 diodes go short circuit.

Just stuck a coal one in as a wind up.

But then try living here............









Lived around here all my life..........., son has move down to Berkshire can,t believe how nice it is,he especially loves the trees.

Might not be coal anymore but its the same old s*it, going to be burning all the waste Merseyside can dump here....all 390,000 tonnes of it.

But hey, enjoy your zero pollution cars to the full and don't mind us, we are used to having all the crap on our doorstep including the verble kind .
